Last week, HookLogic began its own toy drive in conjunction with Toys for Tots. HookLogic has joined the campaign to spread some joy this holiday season in the New York and Ann Arbor communities. We are collecting in our own offices and have also teamed up with some of our business partners, MEC in New York and IHS Polk in Michigan, to expand our toy collection effort and make the most impact we can locally. The holidays are huge for our retail business and this is a wonderful opportunity for us to connect what we do with giving back. We kicked off our Toys for Tots collections last week and will be accepting donations through December 18th.
Toys for Tots began in 1947 in Los Angeles after Major Bill Hendricks, USMCR, and his wife realized there was no good organization to donate toys to children who had none around the holidays. In just a year, the idea spread nationwide with the help of the United States Marine Corps Reserve. Over the last 67 years, with the goal to ““deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens,” Toys for Tots and the USMCR has collected and distributed more than 469 MILLION toys to children in the United States.
